Chavo – “Chavo’s World” review

Chavo is a 28 year old rapper from Atlanta, Georgia who came onto my radar after signing to Pi’erre Bourne’s very own Interscope Records imprint SossHouse Records. His 2018 debut mixtape Hood Luva was dope, but last year’s follow-up Mixed Emotions (produced entirely by Pi’erre) was even better in my eyes. But with the 1 year anniversary of that previous effort coming up next week, Chavo is reenlisting Pi’erre for his full-length debut.

The intro gets braggadocious over some synths & a flute whereas the next song “Boolie” gets on his gangsta shit over a rowdy beat. The track “X Bitch” talks about a previous girlfriend over a skeletal instrumental while the song “Deal Is” gets on the melodic, more romantic side of things over a spacious beat with some buzzing bass.

The track “I Hope You Remember” talks about continues the themes of love over a moody instrumental while the song “W.Y.F.W. (Who You Fucking With?)” ponders the question over a trap beat with some ominous keyboards. The track “Cheap” gets on the shit-talking side of things over synth-heavy instrumental while the song “Had a Feeling” talks about never taking his kindness for weakness over a devilish instrumental.

The track “L.R. (Left Right) Wrist” talks about life as a pusher instrumental while the song “Countertops” talks about talks about erasing his competition over some synth-horns. The track “Michigan” talks about doubling up over an intoxicating instrumental while the penultimate song “Say So” continues to flex over a wavy beat. The album finishes off with “Free Max B”, which is a dope tribute to the Wave God himself backed by an impassioned instrumental.

Chavo’s World truly lives up to it’s name in my opinion not just because I think this is Chavo’s best work to date, but I can only see him getting bigger & evolving from hereon out. He delivers some of his of most captivating performances to date on a good portion of the album as Pi’erre’s production & sound are still one of a kind.

Score: 3.5/5
